This lesson involves reading 'the sound collector' poem and re-writing a class version of the poem based on the idea of a sound collector visiting the school. After starting the poem together and modelling writing the first verse, children can split into groups with each thinking about the sounds found in different areas of the school (e.g. office, dining hall) and writing a verse. Each group also thinks of a sound effect or action and performs their verse to the class. I have provided some differentiated writing frames and word banks/pictures which can be adapted or used if required.
